Website design pricing varies A LOT. How can you know if you are getting a good price? A good quality website can be one of your company’s greatest assets. It can showcase your company, be a resource for customers, sell your products, and most importantly, bring in more business.
You need to ask yourself some questions before purchasing a website or hire a web designer:
The answers to these question will help you shop for web design packages and will allow web designers to better serve you with a customized quote based on what you need.
A good company website must have the following:
Ask which features are included when you are shopping for a website design. Also, ask what the time frame is for the completion of the website and if you will OWN the website. As strange as it may sound, some web designers will keep ownership of your website if you ordered a package that contains proprietary code that only the web designer can modify.
Make sure you know which features are included and which are extra. Prices for add-ons should be specified up front. Some web design packages have come with add-ons included that should not be charged extra. Some web designers will consider these functionalities as add-ons:
Make sure you understand what will be included in the standard design and what will be charged as an add-on. This way you will not spend money unnecessary in features you might not need or that already included in the web design package.
You can get a good website design package for $2,000 – $5,000. If a company or web designer is asking above $6,000 or more, it is because there is some extra functionality or custom programming involved in the design.
